    omg i had some guys in my squad last night stay together for a change...

    anyway alot of what people bitching about can be fixed by giving us 7 kits again so you would have to rely on proper teamplay...thats asking way too much i know.
    i will jihad jeep all day i think since its in the game.:)

    also i would like to add that with lod 5 all the over used brightness(flashlight too) glare goes away but you still see the tree leaves.
    dont cry that it is a cheat..anyone can set the graphics to whatever they want high or low.

    I am having a hard time getting the chopper to stay on buildings so i can gunner the crap out of infantry but will figure out good spots to do that as i play more..not that there is any VERY good maps just 1 or 2 so so conquest maps

    Yeah, stats aren't everything. There's 1 thing which cannot be placed into stats and that's how many bullets you can land into a persons face in a short amount of time.

    The SCAR-H is a piece of crap on range because of that. The AS VAL, while statistically not a very good weapon, is actually very good to take down single targets.

    Counterbalenced by doing more damage per round. Its TTK [Time to Kill] is one of the highest of all the guns. Its primary disadvantage is its low clip size [20], but for one on one encounters, its one of the best guns in the game.

    Its a good gun but have 10 rounds less makes a huge difference at times. But its not overpowered at all IMO.

    It's recoil is also the highest I've seen. MAchine guns have less recoil.

    Well it seems i get the stuttering with HT enabled on my new 2700K so i gotta disable it for smoother gameplay. Is this something that can be fixed with a patch? Seems dumb to have to go into bios every time i wana play BF3.

    Just leave HT disabled. Unless you do lot's of audio and video encoding of course. For normal/gaming use, HT is pretty useless atm.

    I don't have any obvious stuttering and I keep HT enabled all the time (why get a 2600 if all you use is a 2500?).
    Have you tried some of the easier things, like lowering priority on the Origin process or disabling the in-game overlay it has?

    Is co-op not working? The loading screen will lock up every time, with Battlefield 3 not responding...

    Edit* Reboot seems to have solved this.

    I think the game looks fine as is and yea it's hard to spot enemies but the picture looks clean (don't really like it when games are too bright)

    Hey Folks. I have a question that has been bothering me, and am hoping someone here can help me out.

    My clan and i suck at flying helicopters and jets, and so we got a private ranked server so we can learn how to fly without being shot down as soon as we take off(or fly into the nearest mountain).

    The thing that is worrying me here, is that after a round of Caspian flying around and trying to shoot each other down, the round ended and i got quite a few points. It just didn't feel right, to be earning points on a private server from messing around in planes and heli's.

    The reason we got the server was to learn, as there a few guys in the clan who are new to FPS games, and have never seen a vehicle before. But it still doesn't really sit well with me that i am earning points while messing about with no huge danger around.

    i can assure you that i have no interest in cheating or boosting, and was just wondering what the deal is with private servers, is a 3 vs 3 clan battle akin to boosting? Or is it something that is done?

    Any thoughts welcome.
    Andy
